Sorry about the last post, must have pressed the wrong button.

I have the same problem with my class 60. It occurs when negotiating 2nd radius curves and is due to the limited sideways movement on the coupling combined with the length from the centre of the bogie to the coupling end (about 60 mm). I don't have this problem with the class 25 as the bogie centre to coupling is shorter (about 50 mm). Another factor is the type of rolling stock used. All of my bogie mounted stock has the couplers firmly fixed to the bogie or the main frame, this allows no sideways swing at all. Small wagons vary slightly, older stock have large fixed couplings while the newer wagons have the smaller couplings having a limited side play built in. The class 60 copes with all stock as long as it is only dealing with large radius points.
